Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for taking time to consider us as potential adoptive parents for your child. We can't begin to imagine how difficult and challenging this time in your life must be. The path you have chosen truly takes a selfless individual who is full of love and courage. We will love and take care of your child and provide your child with a safe, loving home and family. Your child will grow up in a home with lots of love, happiness, and laughter and we will provide them with opportunities to make their dreams come true.
We are so excited to welcome your baby into our lives. We live in a great, family-oriented neighborhood in a town located in central Nebraska. Our home has a large, fenced-in yard to play in and there are parks nearby. We love spending time outdoors and take our black lab mix dog named Gauge for a walk every day. We would take your child with us on our walks and would play in the backyard. When the weather isn't as warm out, we would play games inside or even go sledding or build a snowman if there would be snow on the ground. Our days would conclude with family dinner at our table and would be followed by a bedtime story in your child's own bedroom.
A mutual friend introduced us about eight years ago and we have been married for five and a half years. We were both shy at first, but once we got to know each other everything clicked. We found many things we have in common. Our faith, love for travel, and commitment to our families are just a few of the areas where we found similarities.
Another similarity we found was that both of us wanted to have a family. Adoption has always been in our hearts as a possible way to start our family. After being married for four years and having not been blessed with a child naturally, we decided to pursue adoption. Your child would complete our family and he or she already has many people who are excited to meet him or her. Mark comes from a large family and your child would have twenty-four first cousins and would be the first grandchild in Stephanie's family, so he or she would have the best of both worlds. One of our favorite sayings is that 'everything happens for a reason' and we truly believe that this is what God has called us to do. We have hearts full of love, a beautiful home, and wonderful families that would welcome a child with open arms. This child would enrich our lives so much. We look forward to raising a child and teaching them values such as respect, kindness, and honesty.
Family is very important to us and we try to spend as much time with our families as we can. We go to sporting events, school activities, family birthdays, graduations, and holidays. Stephanie's family takes a yearly family trip to Missouri so your child would get to go with all of us. We look forward to having a little one to take with us and share experiences with.
Mark and Stephanie
